"There's a new moon out tonight," said Bobby. "I wonder what they did with the old one?" asked Betty. "I stole it." "Moonthief!" "To give to you." What might Betty do with this wonderful gift of the old moon? She could play frisbee with it, she could use it as a silver tray and serve drinks on it, she and Bobby could go skating on it, keep goldfish in it...Bobby has endless ideas. He's such a daft bear...but of all the bears in the wide, wide, moonlit world Betty loves him best!

This delightful story of a small bear with a wild and wonderful imagination will bring a smile to the face and a skip to the heart of all readers, young and more
